hey guys I urgently need help.

I have a flash movie (an mp3 player)
which has a dynamic text feild with the tag "trackInfo" designed to display the track info of the track playing at runtime.

The problem is that the text feild just shows blank at runtime. the code is obviously effecting the text feild because if it is commented out and the text does not update it shows the initial text.

the line of code i was using was

trackInfo.text= sa[cps].artist; + " - " + sa[cps].track;

just to eliminate the possibility of the data not being stored correctly i tried

trackInfo.text="woo"; but to no avail . the feild is still blank. Dureley this direct manipulation of the feild should show the text?.

can anyone help? i can e-mail them the full project if required (about 2mb)

Did you embed the font in your text field? You have to do that for dynamic text unless you specify _sans or _serif as the font.
